Project #70409 - HUM two discuss 175 words for each and four 75 words reply

1. Frank Gehry compared the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, perhaps his greatest architectural work, to a flower. Others have described it as controlled chaos. What is it to you? How is it representative of postmodern architecture and postmodernism in general? (175 words and i uploaded the photo)

 

2.

Pablo Picasso once said, "It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child." What do you think Picasso meant by this? Consider Picasso's Dora Maar au Chat (1941) -- one of the most expensive paintings in the world. Is this how a "child" would paint? (175 words and i uploaded the photo)

What can I say, exterior design is truly my "cup of tea". In my opinion Frank Gehry's design of the Guggenheim Museum in Spain is absolutely stunning. This piece of art really represents the modern architectures of the 20th century in a very sophisticated way. It's difficult to decide if the buildings' design is controlled chaos or how Gehry sees it as a "flower". I believe it's a little bit of both. From the exterior the building does look like a large-scale flower (even though it's hard to tell with the pictures provided), literally. Figuratively, the beauty of the building can be associated with one of a flower with its structure, curves, and petals. Traditionalist could argue that, yes the building is unique, and very pretty to look at, but is it functional? Really the only place where the art and sculptures are displayed is in the center. This building represents globalism and postmodern architecture because it defines where the world is with all the technical advances. Much of Gehry's vision was brought to life with computer software. Computers in general have played a big role in modern architecture because people can have a vision and design it, fix it, add to it, look at the dimensions before it will be built. Software allows people to make almost anything possible, which allows people to expand their imagination. Gehry's designs led a revolution on modern architecture, including a building in New York inspired by the Guggenheim Museum.

At first glance the building is a little too much to take in all at once. Giving me the thought of controlled chaos, at first glance, then after further examination I can see where the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao comes together to form a unique, stunning piece of art that can be compared to a flower. Just like Frank Gehry, when you take in the picture angle by angle it sort of comes to life and looks as if the building is about to blossom, referring to the layers. In my opinion it seems to be just like Frank Gehry addressed it to be, a flower and an amazing piece of architecture. This building is an exact example of postmodern architecture, it represents how far we have come in not just the architecture aspect of life but technology as well. Technology is changing the way we as humans think, communicate, commute, and live. In this case it allowed Frank to take his vision, map it out tweak it and construct.

it took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child."  Only a few words but the meaning behind them is infinite. I think Picasso meant that his whole life he idolized the greats, the amazing artist such as Raphael. In the mist of it all he might of felt he lost himself a little bit. He lost himself trying to be like someone else, rather than being him. In Picasso's Dora Mara au Chat, I can see where he found himself again. looking at the painting I feel as if he let his inner child and creativity roam free, by that I mean he stuck with what he felt instead of what he wanted to feel. His creativity was being held captive by this pedestal that he placed on other great artist

Picasso has a certain style with all of his art works, and this includes off set eyes on every character. No matter what he paints either he adds eyes, or he enlarges them. This is a great example of how every artist has a certain way of expressing themselves. Because Picasso said "It took me four years to paint like Ralph, but a lifetime to paint like a child" this is a great example of looking up to other people and not expressing yourself truly. I do not believe that this is a way a child would paint. Even though this picture looks a little childish, overall I believe that Pablo also spent lots of time towards every art piece he put together. This painting is one of the most expensive in the world not only because it was Pablo Picasso who created it but because it has a deeper meaning behind it and also some people might even enjoy the awkward angles that this piece throws at you from first glance. Overall, Picasso did however idolize Ralph but at the end of it all this painting expresses himself, his own desires.
